Quick Bites: July 6
Ice cream, mushrooms, Korean BBQ, and whiskey, oh my! This edition of Quick Bites is a mixed foodie bag. Like that weird buffet you once went to that had the Korma next to the KFC-style chicken. Whatever. It works.
1. Australia’s Biggest Ice Cream Grab – Friday July 8
Ben & Jerry’s, my favorite men, are holding a huge giveaway – I’m talking more than 60 000 pints of ice cream! Whee! For a gold coin donation per pint, you can scoop to your heart’s content, knowing that all the money and any leftovers are being donated to Oz Harvest. It’s on at King George’s Square on Friday 8th July, from 12pm.
2. Johnny Walker Meets Korean BBQ – Wednesday July 13
Sounds weird but I think it will work. Enjoy an informal Johnny Walker (Black, Green, Gold, and Blue) tasting session at The Lark, as well as a Korean-inspired feast. Entry is $75, which includes an aperitif on arrival, whiskey tasting session, and a three course meal. Visit this site to RSVP – space is limited!
